Level 5’s new Nintendo 3DS RPG, Fantasy Life, has a release date, which is mentioned in this week’s Famitsu magazine. Sinobi reports that the game is slated for release on December 27th.


Players that dive in early to pick the game up will get net themselves a mini soundtrack CD, with music composed by Nobuo Uematsu, who is working on the game’s OST.

  • I want this game since I first saw it. I’m really glad that Level 5 is doing something different than Inazuma Eleven or Layton, that’s the only thing I see from them lately. I hope we see these coming to the West!

    December 27th? That’s right after the holidays. :( Don’t games sell really poorly right after the holidays? Granted, it’s still being released within the holiday time frame, but there are other killer games being released around that time too, like Monster Hunter on the Wii U, and other such things.

    I don’t want to see this bomb. :(

    Hmm, once again i question Level-5 decision here for releasing them after christmas here as sometimes, they won’t really sell there however, it seems this decision is done to avoid head to head battle with Wii U here.

    Hope that this one will do well as the game concept is really interesting for me here.^_^ And Level-5 surely needs more money after many of its game is not doing really well.T_T

    Not sure if this is my kind of game, is it like Harvest Moon or Animal Crossing life sim?  I think I would pick it up so that I won’t miss the Uematsu soundtrack :)  Sakura Note on the DS had a full OST as a pre-order bonus as that was the only way to get the soundtrack.

    hmmmmm Fantasy Life wasnt that a 
    unreleased 360 game?

    • It is true that the original project was in a way scrapped, but that scrapped version turned into the bonus game “London Life” which they included in Layton 4.

      •  I think he was talking about True Fantasy Live Online, not Layton 4 :D

        • Woah, that happened in 2002-2004 even! So they’ve basically been trying to put out a Fantasy Life game for a whole decade now! That’s crazy!

          • Yeah, back then TFLO was looking very promising. Too bad they didn’t release it.
